Ok, so more than one person has told me recently I need to “get out more”. One even suggested I make it a New Year’s Resolution to find a man. (Oy vey!) I admit, the idea of having someone special in my life is appealing…I think.
So how to find him?
Assuming I can wrap my head around the idea of going “hunting”, where do I look?
Bars and clubs are not for me. Been there, done that, ended badly. The produce section of the grocery store has yielded nothing, so far. But, having watched one of my favorite movies again this evening (“Must Love Dogs”) I got to thinking about online dating. I would be so totally ok with finding a John Cusack out there somewhere, ya know?
I found a site for Singles that compares online dating sites and matchmaking services. What’s cool about this site is that it reviews all the major dating sites and categorizes them for you, so if you’re just looking for a date, you won’t inadvertently end up on a site that focuses on long-term relationships. And yes, amazingly enough, there are sites out there that cater to people in relationships looking for a fling on the side, for example, but 5StarDating.com points them out (a lot less judgmentally than I would, I might add.) But I appreciate that, because I can steer clear of these kinds of sites, if I decide to give online dating a try in this lifetime.
It’s also got a section called Dating Digest that includes articles on dating topics from Speed Dating for Seniors to How to Find Your Soulmate and a whole lot more.
I think for now, I’ll read their articles and call it good. 🙂
i will be anxiously waiting to read your travels in this area…i am in the same sled. 🙂
happy new year!
I’ve used a few different dating sites, and the one thing I can suggest to you is to avoid the free ones and focus on the paid membership sites.
I’ve found that each time I use a free site the person on the other end just doesn’t seem to be committed. The members on the paid sites just seem to be of a higher quality.
I enjoy reading your blog. I always thought dating sites were for people who were loosers.. so i never went on them.. after college it was real hard for me to find someone. with work i got so busy and i stop going to clubs and bars, just not the right atmosphere for me anymore… so a friend of mine told me about http://www.perfectma8.com , she told me its free and thats where she met her fiance.. so i sign up and in two months its our first year anniversary… i am a true atory dating sites work.. but i also have to say, from other peoples experience not all of them are the same.. so make sure you check them out… good luck.
Nice article and hope you’ll meet with that special one
Cool blog. You have a fun way of writing that is really open and engaging! I agree that dating is different due to internet dating sites. I just found this coupon for eHarmony and am going to give that a try! EHROCK gets 1 month free when you sign up for 3 months there. Pretty good deal and just in time for the holidays!
